Baltimore boasts some of the nation's most influential leaders in the struggle for Civil Rights: Frederick Douglass and Thurgood Marshall perhaps chief among them. But the city's Civil Rights heritage runs much deeper.

In the late 1800s, Reverend Harvey Johnson founded the Mutual United Brotherhood of Liberty and was one of the first people to organize individual actions into a concerted effort, 25 years before the founding the NAACP.

Beginning in the 1930s, Lillie Carroll Jackson had the insight to bring youth into the fight for equality and spearheaded protest campaigns that became national models. And in the 1960s, Clarence Mitchell led the NAACP's lobbying effort to get Congress to pass critical legislation including the seminal 1964 Civil Rights Act.

Join Baltimore Heritage director Johns W. Hopkins on a 90-minute walking tour of the Marble Hill neighborhood where these and other giants in the Movement lived, met, and planned how to advance Civil Rights for all.

After the tour, make your way to the Mt. Vernon Marketplace (520 Park Ave; 8 minute drive) to enjoy lunch with your fellow Terps! Lunch not included with tour.
